Gone are the days when cannabis was taboo in many U.S. States. Laws regulating cannabis are getting more relaxed, and many people are now embracing this magic elixir as part of their life. Women as well are discovering the tremendous potential that cannabis offers.

Thanks to advanced research, cannabis is available in many forms. One can smoke it, ingest it, and there are weed gummies that include cookies, chocolate bars, etc. One can ingest CBD products orally and others are available for topical use for skincare and other beauty benefits. 

People have been consuming cannabis for a long time and there is much research proclaiming its health benefits to men and women. Women, in particular, could derive fantastic benefits from using this magic elixir. Here are positive ways cannabis can benefit women:

1. Cannabis and Menstrual Symptoms 

A woman's body goes through changes every month. This means many times in a month their hormone levels change. Hormonal imbalance and menstrual cramps are common in most women.

Menstrual cramps are painful and give a great deal of discomfort for most women. Hash is a natural analgesic that many women use to relieve such pain. This is not surprising as there is much research supporting the pain relief properties of Cannabis

As a result, many women use it to relieve stomach cramps, severe Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), nausea, or muscle ache.

2. Cannabis and Skincare

Many women will give anything to have a spotless face and fresh skin. Hemp Seed oil comes from the cold pressing of hemp oil. The anti-inflammatory property is impressive, and scientists are considering the possibility of using it to treat acne.

Cannabis can successfully treat eczema, and psoriasis. Women suffering from dry and sensitive skin can find relief using cannabis products. The anti-inflammatory property is also beneficial to the skin.

Also, many beauty and skincare products (shampoo, conditioner, facial mask) contain hemp oil, a byproduct of cannabis. It contains heavy omega oil, which helps brighten dull skin and keep the skin moist.

3. Cannabis and Yoga

Stress is common. As a result, a lot of women resort to yoga to calm their nerves. When people combine cannabis with yoga, it provides a tremendous amount of health benefits.

Cannabis makes your bones flexible. With this, a woman will be able to have several yoga moves without the accompanying pain. Cannabis can also reduce muscle soreness and pain that women might feel after yoga sessions. 

Many women attempt yoga to improve focus and curtail restlessness. Meditation is a special type of yoga that helps people connect their breath with a specific sensation in their bodies. This link with their breath helps them expel negative feelings. When people try to meditate, the focus is usually a significant challenge. Naturally, the mind finds it difficult to concentrate. 

So, when women take CBD before yoga, it helps improve their focus.

4. CBD and Breast Cancer

While the mortality rate from breast cancer has reduced, it is pretty common in women. Twenty-five percent of women in the world have breast cancer and there are various forms like metastatic, invasive, non-invasive, and other types.

There is research pointing out that CBD can stop and reverse the growth of the id-1 gene. This gene is linked to cancer – metastatic breast cancer. 

Another effect of CBD is that it can make the side effects of cancer treatment manageable and less severe. Cannabinoids also help in cell regeneration, thereby maintaining the balance of healthy body cells. It restores energy levels, balances sleep, and other side effects common with cancer treatment.

5. CBD Enhances the Beauty Regime 

CBD is a terrific addition to your beauty regimen. It comes with rich and natural properties that are beneficial to the skin and body as a whole. There are compounds in CBD that reduce aging. It can also reduce stress and its effect on males. 

CBD is present in many beauty products. As a result, when women use it, they can enjoy one or more of the following:

  • Improved sleep quality
  • Improved skin health and appearance 
  • Anti-aging benefits
  • Better hair health and stronger hair follicles

6.  CBD Relieves the Symptoms of Menopaus

Typically, most women will get to menopause between the ages of 40 and mid-50. This comes with a silver lining as it marks the end of PMS and its ugly symptoms. Sadly, however, it comes with its issues like:

  • Mood swings
  • Pain
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Low libido, and many more

Interestingly, cannabis can be of great help. According to studies, the body’s endocannabinoid system also helps in regulating body temperature. This means the right dosage of CBD can help cool the body and eliminate some of these side effects.

One of the reasons for mood swings during menopause in women is a drop in estrogen levels. Estrogen helps bring endocannabinoids to life when it comes to stabilizing mood. The anxiety and depression bursting effect of cannabis can help as well.

7. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) Benefits

This is a hormonal disorder of women. When the reproductive hormones are not balanced, the androgen level rises, creating issues in the ovaries affecting reproduction. This sometimes comes with an irregular menstrual cycle. Sadly, there is no definite cause and cure for PCOS.

However, the good news is that supporting the endocannabinoid system might help prevent PCOS, according to a research. There are indications that the malfunction of the endocannabinoid system can lead to PCOS.

Also, marijuana can help women mitigate the symptoms of PCOS like pain (coming from the onset of cysts) and depression. It can also improve moods.

Conclusion 

It is safe to assume that when Mother Nature was creating CBD, she prioritized women's health. Indeed, there are many things a woman will gain from cannabis. CBD will benefit the body and mind altogether. Since most states are now making CBD legal, nothing is stopping you from including it as part of your routine.
